People ask us this all the time, and I find it annoying.

We lived together before we were married, bought a house, got two dogs, and nothing has changed.

My newest response is something along the lines “Well now the old people can’t complain about us living together”.

Am I the only one who doesn’t find the question annoying? I think it’s pretty much like asking how someone is or talking about the weather. 

I always just say it’s going great and talk about something DH and I did together recently or something sweet he did. It’s just small talk! 🙂

@Cecilia37:  I had to smile when I read your post! Because of my strong beliefs, I, too, was one of those who WAITED until after I was married, and, because I did not want to settle for anything less than God’s best for my life, I passed up several potential opportunities to marry when I was much younger and even was engaged once (and broke the engagement) many years before I finally met and married DH.  So I had to wait a very long time, lol! 🙂 

Although I can’t possibly speak for your friend, I will say that there are so many positives associated with waiting until you are married, not the least of which is having your sexual relationship commence on the other side of having already made a permanent, lifelong commitment to each other in marriage. However, I will say that it is definitely interesting to adjust to the instantaneous change that takes place following the wedding, when you literally go from never having seen each other unclothed and all you’ve allowed yourself to experience with your Fiance is kissing, to the fullness of a God-ordained marriage relationship.

@JsDragonfly: Awww. I can totally relate to your post also! DH and I were in an LDR from the beginning, and we only saw each other two to three times a month when we dated and were engaged.  After we returned from our honeymoon, I had to spend almost the entire first year of our marriage living in and working from two states until my house sold and I could wrap up my job. I also had to adjust to having stepchildren around most of the time I was able to be with DH, too.  It was hard to have a husband whose life was very full and very busy before he married me and also for me to have to relocate, quit my job, and leave my friends and successful life where I had lived for many years to finally be able to join him full time in “his” world. We now have been living in the same house full time for more than a year and a half. It’s definitely been a challenge!!

I hate when people ask me that and I usually give one of two answers:

1) It’s the same as engaged life except with more sparkle. 

2) Oh things are pretty normal he gets on my nerves I get on his back and then we snuggle together and go to bed. You know the usual stuff… Wink

I used to say “So much better than engaged life” but I got a lot of blank stares in response, so now I say “It’s great, thanks for asking!”
